Description

It’s time for Holly’s eighteenth century history podcast! Oh wait, no, this is a Queer Girl Film Club episode about Oscar winning* slice of genius The Favourite (2018). But it does contain quite a bit of Holly talking about the actual history, so we hope that’s to your liking.

There’s also plenty of space for rhapsodising Olivia Colman’s incredible performance, Emma Stone’s complex portrayal, and Rachel Weisz in THAT SHOOTING OUTFIT. There’s even some self-censoring from G, who doesn’t tell us exactly what she thinks about Rachel Weisz but you get the picture.

Along the way Alice tells us about her favourite seventeenth century poet, Holly debunks a duck race, and we talk costumes, screen time and the joy of watching a queer film where the emphasis isn’t on queer peril.

*This film did not win enough Oscars.

CN: VERY STRONG LANGUAGE (from Chaucer to Rachel Weisz), child and pregnancy loss (45:35-46:42 and 56:05-57:45 ), discussion of a sexual nature and spoilers.
